Prove it!

Two good ol' boys from right here in Georgia have a Bigfoot in their freezer. I have a very simple rule when it comes to this type of claim. "Extraordinary proof requires extraordinary evidence." Let's see it. Let's MRI the whole thing. Let's work to preserve it for future study. etc. etc. That's what real scientists do with real evidence. Ten to one none of that happens here. In fact I'd be willing to bet that we never see any evidence at all and in a few weeks they will claim that their evidence was "stolen".
Hey I'd love to be proven wrong and I'll gladly eat crow when this is declared a new species. Until then I think that these two bozos have just taken a picture of a Bigfoot costume that they bought online. Doesn't that seem much more believable?

  1. I'm with you on this one. When I first read the story the first thing that came to mind was, "I wonder how they're going to pull this off." It looked fake to me, and I'm waiting to see how this is all going to go down. I'd love to be proven wrong on this, but I highly doubt this is anything groundbreaking.

    I'm sure you have heard by now that the hoax has been revelaed and you were right. I just wanted to let you know that I know the officer that was making the claim, to have found bigfoot. They call refer to him as VI (short for village idiot). He is actually a pretty funny guy, bizarre since of humor though.
